What people are saying about Tenerife

Eileen and David were amazing hosts on the boat tour! Super friendly and welcoming. They also offered us great recommendations for restaurants on the island. We had choppy water due to the high winds but were still able to spot some dolphins and pilot whales. (If you easily get sea sick, I would recommend taking some medication beforehand or with you just in case.) It was really nice to be on a sail boat with a smaller group of people. Much more private of a tour.

Fantastic boat trip. We saw dolphins and were able to enjoy a swim in gorgeous blue waters near Los Gigantes. Lunch was great and complimentary drinks included were a nice touch. Would recommend.

All well organized. The animators, very good, extensive command of several languages. The captain pending his own, the search for dolphins and whales, which he fulfilled perfectly.

Super team, very friendly and with personal touch. Enjoyed the day with seeing whales, fishing and some swimming in sea. Really awesome experience.

Journée très agréable. Nous avons pu observer des dauphins et des baleines. Les falaises de Los Gigantes magnifiques.
